Anyone with Hungarian roots/relatives? [Moved from Quebec board]

maisonbistro | Sep 13, 2007 06:53 AM

For many many years now, I have been searching for a recipe for ludlbab. The only place in Montreal where I ever had the original was at the Coffee Mill, downtown - long gone. Cafe Roccoco sells one, but it's not authentic, and there is a baker here in NDG that makes one, but again, not the real thing. The one I had at the Coffee Mill (my parents used to take me there for my birthday or any special occasions when I was a child) wasn't very high, was dense - had a shortbreadlike crust, sour cherries here and there and a crisp chocolate top. I have been to Budapest a few times and had it there also. But it seems that the recipe is a closerly guarded national secret, as I have been unable to get my hands on one - either through internet searches or from my hungarian friends.

Does anyone know anyone who knows someone who might have a recipe and be willing to part with it???
